Earth Day Planting Opportunity

April 23 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

The Carolinas Chapter of The American Chestnut Foundation invites you to join us in planting 350 wild-type American chestnuts! These seeds have been sourced from over 90 wild-type American trees, and are a crucial step to species diversification. We will be planting these trees at the Pryor Orchard in Edneyville Township, NC on Saturday, April 23 at 9:30am.

If you’re interested in joining, please dress for field work and bring gloves. We plan to have all the needed tools at the orchard. The Chapter will be providing lunch to those who RSVP by Thursday, April 21st.

Before we start, we will give a brief presentation on American chestnut trees and proper planting procedures. We hope to see you there!
